Governor Scott Walker says he’s not ready to endorse a presidential candidate. Walker will be attending tonight’s Fox Business Network’s GOP presidential debate in Milwaukee. “My hope is that . . . ultimately for the good of voters here in Wisconsin and across the country, that the moderators aren’t the focus, the panelists aren’t the focus, the ideas are the focus,” Walker said Tuesday in Madison.
The Republican governor – who made an appearance in Milwaukee with Jeb Bush – said he’s not ready to make an endorsement. “Probably not. I think my goal right now is to help a fellow cheesehead, (RNC chair) Reince Priebus, and some of the others with the national party build a base, not only financially but in terms of grass-roots,” Walker said.
Walker ended his own presidential bid in September. The debate will take place at the Milwaukee Theater starting at 8 p.m. Just eight candidates will be on stage for the two-hour debate, which was only open to those polling above 2.5 percent. The four candidate undercard debate will take place at 7 p.m.
